Why Self Esteem TRIUMPHS Narcissism!

Take a person who is narcissistic. They need constant validation. They need to always be right. They need to dominate every argument. They need to be seen as strong and powerful by others. But underneath it all is a person with lots of insecurity and fear. 😨

They barely understand themselves as a person, because they’re too focused on what other people think of them. They actually have low self-esteem. 👀

Now take another person, but this person has high self-esteem. They don’t worry what others think of them. What matters to them is what they think of themselves. They understand themselves on a deep level. They are very self-accepting of who they are. They don’t feel a need to flaunt themselves. 🤷‍♂️

They carry their own Inner Cheerleader. 🥳

Can you relate to either of these people in some way? Perhaps you can relate a bit of both of them? 🤔

I admit I do! 🙋‍♂️

Yes, I’ve sometimes looked at how many likes I got on my photos. I’ve sometimes looked to see who liked my content. I’ve sometimes gotten worried when my posts didn’t get a lot of reception. 😨

But then again, I also don’t typically depend on Likes and Comments to make me happy either. I am genuinely happy with who I am as a person, my sense of self. ️👤

I share this photo above mostly because modeling photos on social media are what people like to see. So here’s your eye-candy; this is my silly impression of “modeling”! 😝

And I say this all of this to you with so much love. ❤️

Why? Because we won’t always have people on the Internet to validate us. We won’t always have people in our lives that are kind to us. So we will always have to keep refilling our Happiness Cup endlessly. 

And when our cup is empty, what are we left with? Nothing. Emptiness. 💨

But with self-esteem, your cup is always filled! You refill it whenever you want! You are in control! 💪
